At the moment, Reaver is not available in solus repository. So we need to use  .tar.gz package to install
First step is the system.devel package, it has lots of libraries and apps for compiling most software.

sudo eopkg it -c system.devel

Reaver requires the libpcap and libsqlite3 libraries. So install them from solus repository

sudo eopkg it sqlite3
sudo eopkg it sqlite3-devel
sudo eopkg it libpcap
sudo eopkg it libpcap-devel

Now download Reaver 1.4 using following command


Check for latest version at:

Extract reaver tar.gz file:

tar xfvz reaver-1.4.tar.gz

Install reaver:

cd reaver-1.4/src/ && ./configure && make && sudo make install
